you, senator. is there really no other way? >> steve argues that there is an inability for servicers to write down principal on private label securitized loans absolutely false. writing down a principal has been increasing over time on private label securitized loans. there is no ability for a servicer of a fannie or freddie loan to actually write down. there is a big distinction there. second, he says that we, m.r.p., can't figure out a way to get these loans out. it is because m.r.p. doesn't actually own the loan. what they are proposing at the core of its proposal is m.r.p. wants to take loans from somebody else. that is what eminent domain is all about. the person does not want to sell you those loans so you grab them without that person's consent. we'll come back to legal issues throughout the discussion here. sticking to the policy side of it, there is a reason you can't get out of the trust. the reason is the united states government, the u.s. department of treasury through tax law, does not allow those loans to be sold out. when you come back to the legal analysis figuring ou

that the freshman congressman, steve stockman of texas, said he was actually going to proceed in that course. whats the administrations reaction -- >> the position the president continues to have on the commission that he created was that it provided a very important framework to move forward on deficit reduction. i dont know -- i trust your reporting about the interest of some house republicans in putting that forward. id be interested to hear what chairman ryan has to say about it since he sat on the simpson-bowles commission, as did i believe other house republicans, and they all voted no. so it is important to remember -- and i think a lot of people when they talk about the commission that the president set up, that that commission called for significantly higher revenues than the president has called for and significantly deeper defense cuts than the president called for; and, actually, in the first 10 years, fewer savings from entitlement programs than the president has called for. so when you get into the details of it, you have to wonder whether or not support from republicans would really
